Mr. William Bowe

Achieving health literacy for all students is dependent upon a comprehensive health education program. We want our students to be healthy for their ownsake, but the fact remains: Healthy children also learn better. Health literacy promotes behaviors that lead to more meaningful education and a higher quality of life.

Topics to be covered include at-risk behavior, nutrition/physical fitness, mental and emotional health, human sexuality, disease prevention, and drugs.
